The People Value Proposition: See one, Do one, Teach one ... LEAD - A Physician's Journey to Leadership
There is a widely acknowledged failure in leadership development across the spectrum, from corporations to communities. The fact is, few organizations are confident in and comfortable with the sustainability of their leadership teams, and healthcare is not immune to this deficiency.
From topics like The Journey to Leadership and Defining the Leader You Want to Become, to Inspiration and Innovation, The People Value Proposition acknowledges that leadership begins with the individual, but emphasizes that by recognizing and nurturing the value of others, everyone succeeds. Author Dr. Stanley Harris discusses the importance of empathy, engagement, and motivation to sustain connectivity, inspire innovation, and enable new leaders to emerge.
Written as a semi-autobiographical account of leadership development that covers key principles of leadership, The People Value Proposition is conveyed from the unique perspective of the author’s life and experience. It challenges both leaders and potential leaders to acknowledge and promote the value of every individual, enabling optimal utilization of resources and continued team success.
